-pa-tim pawlenty. in addition to governor snoozy, there's george w. bush's budger director, rob portman, and then what the times refers to as the two dark horse choices, paul ryan, the guy who became nationally famous when he surged taking away medicare from old people and giving them coupons instead, and also louisiana governor bobby jindal. yesterday, he joins bobby jindal in louisiana for fund-raisers. the beltway press describing him as buzzed about as one of romney's most visible supporters and as a vp short lister. >> i'm bobby jindal, governor of louisiana. >> according to the washington post, bobby jindal's stock is on the rise. the paper extolling the many conservative virtues that make him a possible vice presidential choice, like for example, criticizing president obama. republican voters love that. and fighting with democrats on tv. that's a must. also, he is not old. mossel tav. and there's the rolling back of medical care for the poor and uninsured in his state. maybe that could cancel out romney care in massachusetts? in fact, it would be a huge deal if mitt romney did pi
presidential election, george h.w. bush released 14 years of his tax returns going back to 1973. there's no exact number of years that is the standard. but when mitt romney says the president is that you don't have to release much in the way of tax returns, just a couple years will do it, that's not true. the obama campaign released this chart this week showing how many years worth of tax returns the last four presidents released as they campaigned for office. they're putting this out because they think mr. romney has been wrong when he asserted he's following precedent. he released eight years. george w. bush released ten. clinton released 12 years. poppy bush released 14 years. then they added on another guy, the last blue column, that is george romney, who is just a candidate for president. he of course never became president, but he is mitt romney's dad. so what's normal in presidential politics is to release many years of your tax returns. the romney campaign if they cont wanted to could come back and say all those people who became president and my dad released more than five yea
lie. >> and the big panel weighs in on george w. bush's jaw-dropping new interview. >> eight years was awesome. and you know, i was famous and i was powerful. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. another day, another new plan of attack for the romney campaign. yesterday, it was the dart board mentality. today, it's the kitchen sink approach. >> his priority is not creating jobs for you. his priority is trying to keep his own diop job, and that's why he's going to lose it. >> he's out of touch, out of ideas, out of excuses. that's why in november we have to get him out of office. >> he divides us. he tried to diminish those who have been successful in one walk of life or another. it's simply wrong. >> to recap, president obama cares about his own job and not yours. he's out of touch and out of excuses. and he's a president who is just dividing america and tearing americans apart. you know, gone are the days when mitt romney would say something nice about president obama, that he's a nice guy. >> i think he's a nice person. i just don't think we can afford him any longer
, but it's the equiv lnlt of 2004, of democrats saying we're going to bring up george w. bush's alcoholism and the fact until the age of 40, he really didn't have any purpose in his life. well, that might have been relevant for some democrats, you might have wanted to dwell on that. but actually, by that point, he had invaded two countries. he had a record as president. if you want to go out and dislike this president, if you feel negative about him, there are plenty of things to grab on to. what does it do for people who are the gettable voters, the swing voters, the independent voters. they think this is completely off topic. go down this rabbit hole for the republicans. it won't take them any closer to landing a blow on a president, a sitting president they're going for, not a new guy running for nomination. >> yeah, bob shrum, when a campaign decides to go heavily negative in july, what does it tell you about the campaign? >> this is, in 2004, we never brought up the fact that george w. bush had been an alcoholic until 40. it would have hurt us, we knew it would have hurt us. when the

to be their presidential nominee to succeed president george w. bush, the guy who was supposed to win in '08, the guy who was the early beltway favorite was fred thompson. fred thompson who was an actor on "law and order" and who is a large man and had a very deep voice and who looksç very presidentialish from a distance. on tv. and i've always thought that the fred thompson mania of the 2008 presidential race, the sort of pundit mania over the prospects for fred thompson were largely based on what he looked like and he's a big guy and has this big great voice. in terms of his resume, what he was known for was being an actor on "law and order." he had been a lobbiest for decades on washington. that usually means you have represented some unpolitically correct clients. in his case some abortion rights clients when he was trying to run as an anti-abortion rights politician. in addition to bb a lobbyist and the guy on tv, he served one and a half terms in the u.s. senate. but honestly his time in the senate was characterized by no real accomplishment of any note. there's no fred thompson legislative achie
h.w. bush and in 2004 by george w. bush against john kerry, the swift boating. all three of these politicians come from massachusetts. i wonder if it's something in the water there. but what you're seeing is very carefully constructed box. there are small nails that go into the box and there's some big rivets that go in there. the small nails are things like this controversy the last three or four days of whether he was -- whether romney was in charge of bain capital from 1999 to 2002, but the biggest piece of this argument are the tax returns. romney is going to be hammered on these tax returns until he releases them, and a number of republicans are now saying that. >> let me show you also the way the romney campaign has counter-attacked because they have released an ad featuring journalists. watch this. >> when the president was elected, he talked about hope and change. whatever happened to hope and change? now it seems he's just coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads. >> by starting negative, by going extremely tough and extremely hard, looki
very long years of george w. bush and dick cheney. part of the republican wisdom about what happened in 2008 is simply that john mccain wasn't disgusting enough. that john mccain wasn't willing to indulge that enranged batty old ladies of his audience who heard somewhere that obombe is an arab. part of the republican establishment thinks the lesson of 20008 is john mccain was too decent. if you wallow with the birthers and he's a secret muslim folks, if you run your campaign out of the comment section of youtube videos about the panama canal and the muslim brotherhood taking over the state department, part of them thinks that's howia win. the question is are they right? bob joins us next. ia win. the question is are they right? bob joins us next. mine was earned off vietnam in 1968. over the south pacific in 1943. i got mine in iraq, 2003. usaa auto insurance is often handed down from generation to generation. because it offers a superior level of protection, and because usaa's commitment to serve the military, veterans and their families is without equal. begin your legacy, get an a

rights, were not a fan of george w. bush. there was the war, two wars, several other issues, to say the least, but you're watching, you write in your book you're watching the state of the union address, you lived in the states on and off, you've had a home in atlanta, you're watching the 2003 state of the union address. tell me about your reactions to watching george w. bush announcing the billions of dollars that he was going to ask for to be appropriated for global aids. >> i remember jumping up and punching the air but also, at the same time, feeling that i swallowed a boiled egg. i couldn't believe it. it was just a wonderful, again, a pivotal turning point in the treatment of aids people throughout the world. and when i got my kennedy center honor and spent some time with him and rumsfeld and condoleezza rice and colin powell backstage at the interval of the concert, we had a wonderful ten minutes of conversation. he was very informed about aids. i wasn't on the same political, you know, page as him. i didn't agree with a lot of his policies. but he impressed me greatly. >> in
white house press secretary for george w. bush ari fleisher. cnn contributor paul begala. joins me as well. you advise the super pac which has run a lot these negative ads. negative campaigning, you're more than okay with it? >> totally, absolutely. the ads to the pac i advise which is priorities usa action. they have featured the most powerful ads. and the ones we have run the most of. the real words of real people that mitt romney laid off. he came and took over these companies. he loaded them up with debt. he in some cases he bankrupted them. paid himself millions. and canceled the health benefits. we sent cameras to places like kansas city. and we filmed these people. they're heartbreaking stories. the "los angeles times," "l.a. times," terrific journalist, called our ad the most effective democratic ad this year. >> -- there's been a slew of positive ads? >> yeah, i don't know how many is in a slew. i thought you nailed ax pretty well on this. my job i think in this pro-obama super pac is simply to define romney. if we run a single positive ad, i'll be disappointed. we might r
actually, i don't think george w. bush cares all that butch this, but i think it has helped his post presidential image that he has stayed behind the scenes. he's not been critical in any way, shape, or form of barack obama and not tried to draw attention to himself. this is someone who spent eight very controversial years in office, left office quite unpopular. the way he has handled himself since leaving office, he has done himself some political good. i don't think that's why he did it or that he cares all that much. >> then the question is what role will he play, if any in, tampa and what role his father might play. chris, thank you so much. we'll you see you tomorrow from washington. follow the show online and on twitter @mitchell reports. my friend tamron hall has a look what's next. >> following a lot of big news. hour. rush limbaugh claims the romney campaign is following his strategy and points to the comments made by governor john sununu saying he needs to learn how to be an american. we're waiting to hear what governor romney has to say as he holds a town hall in ohio. >>>
, which is fine. in the words of george w. bush, you don't forget poland. but how do you go on your big presidential trip as a presidential candidate and not going to afghanistan? how do you not go to where we're still at war? in an interview today with brian williams, he turned down the opportunity to criticize the president on foreign policy, being on foreign soil and what not. but if you compare mitt romney's foreign policy and obama's foreign policy, you see mitt is very good at used the tough-sounding words but is less good at differentiating himself from the president. joining us now is spencer ackman, national security writer, a friend of mine, and somebody who has dug deep into romney's foreign policy. good to see you. you wrote a great piece today, and the kite title was "the five things we learned about how mitt romney would run the world." number one is he seems to run the world when it comes to afghanistan, egypt, and iran a lot like obama is running the world. >> a lot like if romney hired obama's aides but they had nothing but bad things to say about themselves. you get a
is going to be in ohio. tomorrow the president starts a two-day tour in florida. george w. bush talking about the politics, the mudslinging and how he feels now. this was at the hoover institution at stanford. >> pretty unattractive metaphor. i said i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not crawling back in. and you know, i'm interested in politics. i'm, you know, i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well. but you know, he can do well without me. >> and he also made the point as he has before that he believes that you should not get in the way of the current kin habtant of the oval office. >> he's kept to that, andrea, i would say. he really has kept an incredibly low profile since leaving office. one think i say about george bush, we think of the eight years he was president, six years as governor before that. this is somebody involved in politics basically his whole life. his father obviously our president of the united states, he was deeply involved in the 1988 presidential campaign. so he's been doing it for a long time. you can kind of understand why he's interested in it fr

at running mates and teams, is it al gore and clinton, is it cheney and george w. bush? who in the past, is it george herbert walker bush and ronald reagan? what's your role model for what a good vice president should be. is it joe biden? >> i haven't really given that a lot of thought or studied the dynamic or synergies between the vice president and the president in years gone past. i would want to give that some thought and give you a more thoughtful answer but just off the cuff, i would say if you look at the relationship that ronald reagan had with george bush, h.w. bush, that seemed to be a healthy, dynamic and constructive relationship. i'm sure there are others. but just off the cuff, that would be one that would be worth further review and study. seems they had a good relationship and good partnership. >> people are talking about senator portman, one of your colleagues, because of ohio and the importance of ohio. clearly minnesota is not considered a swing state here. the last time it actually voted for a republican -- >> 1972 is the answer. it's the longest unbroken streak of

of the george w. bush administration. has declared he is china's door mat. in a way no modern administration has been, mitt romney is calling him a door mat. he likes to make a big deal out of saying he as president would be more confrontational. mr. romney wrote on op ed saying he would take aggressive action against the second largest economy in the world. so aggressive he would start a war against the two greatest economies on earth. his plans were stated as a blunder. it was described as mr. romney's hulk policy. romney smashhina. but for all mr. romney is turning green and shredding his shirts with biceps, when it comes to making realç decisions about countries in the market place, mr. romney has not been all that big in confrontation in the real world. in his book no apology, president bush's design to stand up against china had done more harm than good. he called president obama's defense of american tire companies bad for the nation. so this is a test. this is an administration that even if you like what they have done has been not that great at chest bumping. rightly or wrongly, it's j
action forum and was the congressional budget office director under president george w. bush. nice to see you, sir. >> nice to be here. >> greta: how bleak is this? >> this is a very, very big threat to the u.s. economy. the fiscal cliff itself is a combination of $400 billion in increased taxes, $200 billion in spending cuts. that combination $600 billion is about 4% of gdp. 4% of the national income. since we are only growing at 2% it doesn't take a genius to realize if you drop that kind of hit on it the economy will go into a big recession. >> greta: when do you predict, let's say that the tax cuts are not extended when did you you predict we are going into the horrible recession although many people think we are still in one. >> the concern is we are growing at 1.5%, 2% anded is taxes going from 15 to 45%. businesses looking at big increases in the classes. middle class is going to see their taxes go up with the alternative minimum tax. as the fall progresses we will see worse and worse economic performance and bear the brunt of the fiscal cliff in advance and i worry about that a lo
, let me go to you. when you look at the record, president obama released 12 years. george w. bush, eight years. george romney his own father, 12 years. and when you hear this raise to the romney campaign he's been inaccurately saying teresa heinz kerry didn't releez her taxes in 2004. let me show you what he says about mrs. kerry. >> john kerry ran for president. his wife who has hundreds of millions of dollars, she never released her tax returns. somehow this wasn't an issue. >> now, i might add the kerry campaign -- not the campaign but his office, he's not running anymore. came back with this. the romney campaign needs to stop getting their facts wrong. mitt romney ought to speak for himself rather than making inaccurate comments about teresa. it's interesting to me, erin. first he was saying kerry only put out two years and it ended up being five. he's trying to do everything he can to deflect from answering. why he doesn't do what moes people have done. >> well, remember also, teresa heinz kerry didn't run for president. john kerry did. and mitt romney is running for presiden
and there's nothing we can't do if we put our backs into it. that reminds me of early term george w. bush. it was about how much america wanted it. the real lesson romney's camp, the people who are chacined by the bush administration, they have to be reeling from that. >> if you want to look to the guy whose words and actions match up and have been more consistent, that's obama. it's not romney. it's obama who in 2007 said he was doing to have an all-out effort to kill osama bin laden with or without pakistan. obama said who he was going to increase troop levels in pakistan. who said he was going to end the rack war. when you look at romney then, sometimes now, sometimes last tuesday, sometimes next wednesday, it's a little different. you've got an actually more hawkish romney on iran than you do this time around. russia is the biggest foe until this new speech at the vfw in which iran poses the danger. it's more difficult to get a sense of where that resolve actually plays out, and i tell you, i wanted to walk out on this speech so badly. and romney denied me the facts, figures, numbers.

and former chief strategist for george w. bush mark mckenna join us "outfront" tonight. i want to play a clip of an impressive attack by ohio's own john boehner. let's take a listen. >> i think the president's attack on the private sector in america is exactly what's wrong with this administration. doesn't give a damn about middle class americans who are out there looking for work. what he's trying to do is distract the american people in order to win his own reelection. >> tell us how you really feel there, john. let's talk about the importance of ohio. take a look at the current cnn electoral map. in this scenario, obama seems likely to start with 247 electoral votes. romney expected to get 206. 85 are a toss-up. suddenly obama is within five electoral votes of winning. roland, there's a reason obama has made eight trips to ohio so far this year. romney's made ten. what do you think president obama needs to do to win over the main street middle class voters in the buckeye state? >> actually if you go back to 2009, the two states he was immediately going to were ohio as well as north carolin
george w. bush in the florida recount in 2000. this is not the first time he's been dispatched to a party convention by romney, but whenever his name comes up in news reports about those otherwise little noted state conventions, it's in kwekz with efforts to rangle ron paul supporters trying to take over the state and delegates for themselves. for whatever reason the romney campaign sent its top lawyer to the nebraska republican convention. when athey squared off this weekend, what happened? the ron paul folks are excited for the last chance to be the camel's libertarian nose wigg wiggling into the mainstream tent. they dispatched the staff to hold the tent in place to keep the camel out. what happened this weekend in nebraska? the camel got smoked, and that's a quote from the omaha world herald who described the ron paul revolution as failing to materialize this weekend in nebraska. quote, in the end the paul revolution in nebraska got smoked, ron paul won two national delegates. mr. romney, the party's presump active presidential nominee won the rest. two delegates. that was ron paul's
